About Christianne Porta
There is always a valid reason why we feel pain and fear. Together we will work towards connecting what past experiences are contributing to your difficulties today. Connection and understanding helps make sense of pain, loss, and other hardships. The skills you will learn in therapy will enable you to respond to challenging situations with confidence rather than emotional chaos. I am trained in: EMDR, a highly effective approach that facilitates healing of varying degrees of trauma. DBT, this model focuses on separating our thoughts from our feelings, giving us a greater sense of control over our reactions. For couples, I use the Gottman Method, a therapy model that finds specific areas in a relationship in need of strengthening, providing couples with a strong foundation based on commitment and trust.
